Re: Pesticide Spraying

Bit late to respond. My initial thought was the need to have completed a hand held sprayer course. The HSE site is a little vague, but have you had a look at this. https://www.hse.gov.uk/pesticides/resources/R/Recognised_certificates.pdf The OPs circumstances may fall into that area where legislatio...

Re: FRA 'tools'

Messy, I’ve used iauditor and some others.with good effect. But, like you, the ability to scribble or make notes is the constant backup for where the apps don’t cover the scenario. I suppose the combination of using templates for the expected or norm gives consistency and time saving as well as pape...

Re: FRA 'tools'

If you are looking for a paperless method, my experience has been very good with iAuditor- but I emphasis I didn’t set it up, although in hindsight, it seems more tedious and planned than it is difficult. As an alternative, lots of hauliers use a paperless app for vehicle checks that range from kick...

Re: Hand Sanitiser Warning

Hi Mick,
Nice analysis of the product. Having decided to update the HSE it may have been no bad idea to actually say who the provider is, its not as if the supplier is doing anything wrong. It saves the HSE making generalised comments that may not be relevant to the wider suppliers/users.

Re: Road workers

I think it was thew result of a case rather than just reporting the incident - in brief as I recall it was along the lines of road worker/s had coned off area but their work extended slightly beyond the cones into the live lane. Work continued in the live lane rather than changing the safe area. Roa...

Re: Difficult Fire Drill

Messy, I like the 4 point plan, about the only thing I'd revisit is the "offer" of a walk through for fire wardens and make it compulsory, whether that is I directly or via zoom/whatsapp etc. It just removes the doubt, ambiguity or merely "yes" responses to your requests. Its obvious you have though...

Re: PPE - Hard Hats

A quick look at a well known PPE provider site shows their hard hats have a 'shelf life' of 5 yrs but recommend changing sooner. How often were you thinking of replacement?

Re: Public advised to cover faces in enclosed spaces

This morning's news (several channels) was quite interesting that the perception by many people was the mask would protect the wearer from others, whilst it was my understanding that general face covering to the Gov spec, such as a scarf etc, was more to try to reduce the spread caused by the wearer.

Re: Installing CCTV Cameras

As a quick reply - so you shin up a ladder and keeping three points of contact at the top, how much work could you safely do on the cctv? MEWP/ cherry picker seems the way to go and do so safely.

Re: Hearing Protectiong and Ear Infections

Perhaps widening the research options will help. It's a bit of a surprise that both internal and external hearing protection causes the same result - infection. How quickly does it arise after they start to wear the protection? I'm anticipating that it happens fairly quickly. I'm no medical person, ...

Re: Mobile ladders with platforms as permanent stairs

But like I said, my advisor wanted to quote "section this from regulation that" at the client. Are we being fixated on the "quote act and section part and not looking at the scenario. AFAIK, there is not exact act, regulation or section which quotes '3 points of contact' and so forth, such comments...
